Last Christmas, I sat down with my sister and parents to watch Frozen. My parents had never seen the film that my sister and I vowed to watch every time it snowed (which was every other week, not that we minded in the least). Now, my parents aren’t the best to watch movies with, so I wasn’t surprised when my dad had an objection within the first 15 minutes.
“Why does Elsa have magical powers?”
Wait. He had a point. It makes absolutely no sense why Elsa can shoot icicles out of her palms.
As a kid, we watched Disney movies like we were supposed to. We suspended our disbelief and just took in whatever Walt & Co. wanted to give us.
As an adult, things got more complicated, for better or for worse. Instead of just enjoying a film, we had questions…and Disney gave us a lot of plot flaws that we couldn’t simply overlook.
Frozen isn’t the only movie that makes us ponder how such a huge point went unanswered. From The Little Mermaid to Tarzan, Disney forgot to tie up some loose ends.
Check out some of the questions Disney left unanswered below.
